Emergency crews have had a very busy day responding to multiple car crashes in what is shaping up to be a very poor day of driving on Oklahoma thoroughfares.

So far, emergency personnel have been called to four separate accidents that have occurred seemingly like clockwork on Interstates 44, 40, 35 and the Broadway Extension.

Earlier Friday around 1 p.m., an Oklahoma City Police cruiser and another car were involved in an accident on southbound Broadway Extension near I-44.

Then just before 2 p.m. a cement truck overturned on the southbound lanes of I-44 near I-40. The driver of the truck was transported to a local hospital in good condition. Crews were still working to cleanup this accident after 5 p.m.

The latest accident occurred on the eastbound side of I-40 near the I-44 junction, just before 4 p.m. At least two vehicles were involved in that accident, which caused some traffic delays in that area. EMSA was called to the scene, but no information on injuries has been released.
